Running 2.5" downpipe no cat to 3" exhaust with 2 borla resonators to a N1 style muffler with a silencer on. My camera I used to get the sound clip sucked. I'm gonna get a new one soon to post on here. But have some pics of the muffler and the install.




Also painted my headlights like the ses headlights. Turned out pretty good. I sealed them and let the silicone cure for quite a while, like 6 hours, but still have some fogging and condensation building up. I'll take care of it.

Well thats it for now on updates.
